The Bedouin are often regarded as the indigenous people of the area that makes up Jordan, and a large portion of the country's population is of Bedouin origin. The New Jordans, Nomadic and seminomadic Bedouin generally live in the country's desert regions but can also be found in some areas of the uplands and Jordan Valley. Many Bedouin, however, have settled in villages and towns across the country. The Bedouin form the backbone of Jordan's army, occupying key military positions, and are extremely loyal to the royal family. They also play a prominent role in the political, economic, and social life of Jordan.
Jordan is also home to a number of ethnic groups that have integrated into Jordanian society. Of these groups, the Circassians are the largest. Living mainly in Jordan's cities, such as Amman, the Circassians are non-Arab Islamic people. They are descendants of Muslim refugees who were settled in the Jordan area by the Ottomans at the end of the nineteenth century. Other minority groups include Armenians and Chechens. www.thenewcheapjordans.com
